Workplace safety is of the utmost importance. If we look at the numbers, an estimated 2.3 million people have work-related accidents yearly! Frequent accidents can put a bad rap on your business and deter the new workforce from applying for your posts.
You should employ health and safety training that’s relevant to your workplace, and one of the best tools to help you out is safety animated videos. Here at Studio52, we’ve created plenty of such videos and today we are sharing why you should utilize them in your education program.
Complex Situations Have Never Been Easier To Show
Sometimes it isn’t easy to describe every possible accident or danger that lies hidden in your workplace. Animated videos allow you to visualize situations that live actors just can’t achieve — not without a great deal of money being spent.
If you’d like to show a machine malfunction, a fire emergency, or an explosion, all of these can be easily brought to life with animation without having to create expensive scenery. Animated videos have a unique advantage over live video production, plus the result can go live in a fraction of the time!
Accessible Anytime, Anywhere
Having all of the essential information in an easily accessible video is great because employees can access it anywhere and anytime to remind themselves of the training they’ve had. As these videos are shorter than your pdf files, they can be shown on any device out there and even shared and distributed among the employees themselves.
Improved Employee Engagement
Videos are far more entertaining than any other media. And far more catchy and memorable — you’re free to use beautiful, complex scripts, graphics, and voices to catch the attention. Videos are far better at helping them understand, digest, and recall all of the information than written media.
Plenty Of Information In a Short Time
Your usual methods of safety training often include, lectures, demos, or presentations — all of these are time-consuming and mentally straining. There’s far more information you can include in a simple two-minute video than you possibly can in an hour of slides. With animated safety videos you’re able to compress hundreds of written pages in a two to three-minute video!
They’re Cost Effective
Health and safety isn’t something that can create a profit and almost always eats away at your budget. However, you should have safety training and compliance integrated into your workplace. Investing in a health and safety animated video can seem like an expensive adventure at first, but this cannot be further away from the truth, as all other solutions will end up costing you a lot more!
With all said, it’s high time you saved some time and money for your educational crew and employees and begin showing safety information in a brilliant and easy-to-understand way.
